I had a pile of songs and no accompanists, had been very underwhelmed by most of the people I was jamming with...and out of the ashes of the ill-fated band PROGRESS (Hart/Zolli/Prescott/Jeff Prescott) rose HipBone in 1993. I was living in an unheated warehouse "artspace" where we rehearsed and recorded aggressively. We played a lot of gigs, some of which were remarkable.
Peter had some wherewithal with a 4-track cassette recorder and we began to record lo-fi studio versions of our songs. The first three EPs had 4 songs each on hi-bias 15m tapes with strange cover art and sold for $3.
These recordings precede the 8-track stuff we did in 1995. Peter Zolli: bass, bk. voice, recording engineer --- Keith Prescott: percussion, drumming --- Bret Hart: guitar, effects, voice, songwriting
